Went to the hotel for dinner and drinks with a friend. It was most enjoyable. There was a great selection on the menu and a lovely wine list. Service was good and nice to see such attention to detail. Cocktails were fab in the Rooftop bar too. Will look forward to going back

Have attended this hotel for a bowls presentation do and was very impressed with the surroundings and facilities. The staff were very attentive. The bar was fully stocked. We were treated to an array of finger food and dips. All presented so well and very tasty. It was a very good night which was enjoyed by all.

I visit this hotel often for bar food and have to say that it's very disappointing. The hotel itself has done so much in the line of renovations but the staff in the bar serving tables/cleaning tables/taking orders, really need to up their game. We arrived at our table which hadn't been cleared. Waited while at least four waiters passed... More

Stayed here last year at a friend wedding and everything was on point. The food the staff the service the atmosphere were all top notch and it all accumulated to a fantastic day for everyone involved. The one draw back was the heat in the function room but the staff tried their best by opening all the doors to draw... More

Visited here for a spa day with my mum and sister recently as they are a Yonka spa and we all use the products. Very reasonable mid week spa rates and offers. Treatment rooms were nice, I had a facial which I enjoyed followed by some time in the thermal area. Jacuzzi in the thermal area was a welcome surprise.... More
